Over All, A Great Car, Although I Liked The Lesabre Much Better. — --Excellent performance. --Excellent fuel economy. (3.8 l V6) --Excellent handling in winter ice and snow conditions. --Comfortable seats, can drive long distances without undue strain or fatigue. --Comfortable car to drive as opposed to "fun". It is not intended to be a sports car. --Would have liked a sun roof option.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Very Underestimated — People think just because its a Buick, it should be driven by a senior, but Im far from a senior. All of the power you get with the GXP and SS, but loaded up with class.Although its a small block, it gets decent milages, especially on long trips. I drove it round trip from Ohio to Georgia and it only cost me $130 in gas. Looks great, sounds great, and feels great. Love everytime I drive it.

A Surprising Buick. — To be honest when I first saw this car, I had negative impressions of it. I thought it was going to be like the stereotypical Buick which I consider only worthwhile for an elderly person. Turns out the Allure(Canadian name) was not the car I feared and that its the Lucerne that had this. The Allure drives alright for such a large vehicle(almost questionable why the Lucerne exists). It has the same 3.8L V6 as the Grand Prix but more refined and controlled. It also seems to handle better than the Grand Prix surprisingly. The interior is full of colour despite being conventional. The build quality seems to be pretty good and I haven't seen any of these cars have an issue. Its big inside, the trunk is big...not much else to say. The resale of these cars stink, its great to buy used but awful buying new and selling early. Still for the smallest Buick, I think its a better value than the Lucerne. I might appreciate this car more if I was much older. From the perspective of a younger person, this car seems to be like a Pontiac Grand Prix but with far less of the drawbacks, the only downside is the styling fitting for the Buick brand.

Great Buick Filled With Features — My dad bought this one. It's nice and all, but the dashboard seems huge. Other than that it is not overly sporty, but it is pretty comfortable.
